Hey, wake up!
« on: June 01, 2018, 08:26:19 AM »
What's going on in here? Did you all think I was gonna let this subforum die??

If you thought yes, then you're wrong!

Peeps, Bowl Expo is right around the corner. We know about the Global pieces. Now what do you want to see from AMF come late June?

A buddy of mine has 6 honor scores with an 878 with the Great Escape. AMF makes some sleepers. Ninja SE & SE Pearl are great. Everything with Nighthawk core rolls well,

I still haven't put holes in my Stealth. I guess I need to. Can't decide between that and my Freight Train lol

Am I the only one who did not like the Green Mamba??? Mine is drilled double thumb and might have 6 games total. It is sitting in my closet. Pretty ball though!

 I think it glows in the dark sometimes!

That core was strong. Sounds like you drilled it too strong. My Bank drilled 60*5*40 was strong enough.

How about a little Sumo SE action?

Straight from Buddies

AMF Sumo SE Bowling Ball

    Color: Black Solid
    Coverstock: F80 Solid
    Weight Block: Sumo Symmetric
    Factory Finish: 1500 Polished
    Flare Potential: 5" +
    Radius of Gyration (RG): 16lbs - 2.47; 15lbs - 2.49; 14lbs - 2.51
    Differential (Diff): 16lbs - 0.050; 15lbs - 0.050; 14lbs - 0.050

I'm all in. That's going to sit well above my badger, which is much stronger than the numbers indicate.  Darkness was one of my favorites for the month I threw it. Then I moved and left it in the garage for 4 months and it cracked. This ball should be a home run.

Nice.  Wish it had the original Sumo core though as that core hits so well for me even in non reactive balls.  Still looks like a solid oiler even if polished (coverstock of the Great Escape with core of Darkness).

This was the original core in the black and purple sumos though wasn't it?  Not even sure if it would be legal or whatever today in new balls.  Then again the modern core they are using is probably much better with a modern reactive coverstock.

There was no better ball out of the box reaction than the original nighthawk. Perfect core, cover combination. Ball hooked, stored energy, and continued through the deck with the oob surface. Loved that ball, but we’re talkin 20 years ago.

It's really sad what 900 Global has done to the once proud and popular AMF brand. It's even more sad that Qubica-AMF let's this go on. If all AMF is going to be is a retro brand, shut it down. Throwing AMF fans a bone 2 or 3 times a year is an insult.
Balls: Motiv Trident Abyss, Motiv Golden Jackal, Motiv Hydra and Motiv Hyper Sniper. All made in the USA.

I was waiting for this post to happen.
